6 years in 28 minutes
There you are, going through life, looking at old photos, thinking about friends you aren't in touch with, lusting for a time long gone. You sit there wondering if anything can possibly happen to put that spark of life back into you. Wondering if anything will ever happen, that will make you smile. Smile from deep within, grinning from ear to ear. Laugh out loud. You almost give up hope. And that's when it happens. Life decides to throw a huge soft pillow right at your head and when you turn around, you see a big smile and hear a big 'Gotcha !!'.
My name is Prasanna Vignesh Ganesan. To anyone following this, it should be all too clear where I'm headed. But I shall re-live the wonderfully quirky events of yesterday once again, more for my own pleasure than yours !
LadyK and I, have a history. It is quite amazing to see two people, meeting randomly in the backwaters of the blogging world, in the most accidental of ways, and realising that they indeed know each other. Really now, how small is this world ?
Myself and VB used to trip her with this other guy, R, who was also a participant in the IIT-JEE charade. She feels extremely amused at the fact that a guy who never spoke to her for the duration of the year we took those classes, now considers himself a fan of her writing. I have to agree, its very quaint, and very, very funny. I haven't stopped smiling since this whole thing started last night :)
I think that this is life telling you something. Its life asking you to realise the things that you miss out on. The people that you miss out on. The chances that you lose. And the chances that you get. She and her friend, apparently, used to refer to me as a geni-ass ;) Be that as I may, LadyK, I'm not missing out on chances a second time around.
Heres to being a fan and being a friend. Heres to 6 years lost and regained in a wonderful 28 minutes.
